Tasting Comment

Appareance

Château Tour de Ségur 2008 is an intense deep purple.

Nose

The nose is as attractive as its predecessors, with clean red fruit notes of redcurrant and strawberry, illuminated by a delicate vanilla note from the oak.

Mouth

The palate is opulent and rich yet balanced and even young, this is perfect with rabbit in mustard sauce or a magret of duck. A treat.
